Conference Speakers

Steve Dubb
consultant and Senior Fellow at The Democracy Collaborative
Steve has nearly 20 years experience as a coach and researcher on the role universities play in community economic development. Over the past 15 years, Steve has written extensively on this topic, publishing many works while at The Democracy Collaborative. His first book, Linking Colleges to Communities, examined the history of universities and community engagement from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twenty-first century. His work has introduced a framework for hospitals and universities to assess and improve their impact in low- and moderate-income communities. This work became the basis for the Anchor Dashboard Learning Cohort. Launched in 2014, Steve helped develop this project into a partnership involving six universities who are co-creating measures to track and assess their impact in ways that are respectful to community partners.
